This 1967 version was beautiful
This 1967 TV version of the play was beautifully-produced and deeply-moving, and featured great theatrical performances from each and every member of the cast. I especially loved Diana Davila's performance in the title role as Anne.
I had the wonderful opportunity of tracking down the videotape version of this (with assistance from the rights owner and the museum which had it). It is so interesting to listen to this audio-taped version and then to watch the videotape.
Thanks for sharing your recording of this. It is a real gem.
